    assisted install

    malachydevlin

      Dear all, I have setup an assisted install as per instructions, FMpro 13 on windows.

      I have set the language to "English"

      ie:

      Assistedinstall.txt

      AI_LANGUAGE=English

       

      IN the setup ini file I have the silent switches as

      CmdLine=/qb+

       

      it runs silently but first it asks you to choose the language, so I have just this one dialog.

       

      The issue is I want to roll this out silently over the network so I don't even want that dialog..

       

      any ideas?

          Note that "Assisted Install.txt" is named thusly, with the space.

          You should also have "[Assisted Install]" in brackets on the first line.

          You probably also want AI_SKIPDIALOG=1 and AI_REGISTRATION=0, to suppress those dialogs.

           

          Here's what we use:

           

          [Assisted Install]
          
          AI_USERNAME=
          AI_ORGANIZATION=Your Org
          AI_LICENSEKEY=Your-License-Key
          AI_LANGUAGE=English
          AI_APPLICATIONUSERS=AllUsers
          AI_NONEWDATABASES=0
          AI_SHORTCUTS=1
          AI_REGISTRATION=0
          AI_SKIPDIALOG=1
          AI_DISABLEUPDATENOTIFY=1
          AI_DISABLEVERSIONNOTIFY=1
          AI_DISABLEPLUGINS=0
          AI_DISABLEXDBC=0
          AI_DISABLEIWP=0

            Thanks, I do have that all set (I just didn't paste the whole doc but here it is).

             

            [Assisted Install]

            AI_USERNAME=

            AI_ORGANIZATION=

            AI_LICENSEKEY=removed

            AI_LANGUAGE=English

            AI_APPLICATIONUSERS=AllUsers

            AI_NONEWDATABASES=1

            AI_SHORTCUTS=1

            AI_REGISTRATION=0

            AI_SKIPDIALOG=1

            AI_DISABLEUPDATENOTIFY=1

            AI_DISABLEVERSIONNOTIFY=1

            AI_DISABLEPLUGINS=0

            AI_DISABLEXDBC=1

            AI_DISABLEIWP=1

              Then I'd double-check the Assisted Install.txt file's name, make sure it's in the same folder as the setup.ini file, and make sure the user running the installation has read permissions on the file. If all that's correct, I think you are probably doing Assisted Install.txt right and the problem lies elsewhere.

               

              Silent installs on Windows systems can require a bit of black magic. If you're using GPO or logon.bat, make sure you're up to date on applicable blood sacrifices.

                This is a bit old thread, but I meet similar problem on FMP14.

                CmdLine=/qb+ seems no effect to installer language, then use administrator command line

                setup.exe /s /v"/qb+"

                succeeded to prevent language selection dialog.

                If you edit CmdLine, command line can be

                setup.exe /s

                 

                My problem is specifying AI_LANGUAGE. Two documents say different things, and both failed.

                Sorry one of two is Japanese

                FileMaker Pro および FileMaker Pro Advanced の設定支援インストール | FileMaker

                Assisted install for FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Pro Advanced | FileMaker

                First says use "Japanese", but it installed English.

                Second says use "日本語" on NON-English OS (me), but no extra folder copied.

                 

                Finally succeeded using "日本語" in unicode with BOM and change line delimiter to CRLF. (shipped file had CR/CRLF mixture)
